Reader Questions...


This weekend was fun, went to my friend's house-warming party (sporting the "Rainbow Look" using the Ben Nye Palette"), the pic above is with my good friend Zari (would you believe she is half Filipino?!), she is one hot mama and as you can see I was very colorful that day! LOL. But if you know me personally, you know it suits my personality. :)

I also got my bunny a new home to give her more room to play!

I had some more reader questions and thought id list them in case any of you are wondering the same thing...

Q: Where can I find the Monistat primer? Would it be in the facial aisle?

A: First of all, let's dissect what Monistat ORIGINALLY is for, it's for the treatment of yeast infections, and this particular chafing gel that we use as a primer, is to treat chafing around the bikini area. So it would NOT be in the facial aisle, but rather in the same aisle as tampons, condoms, and the like....and again just because it's originally for chafing around that particular area, the key ingredient is "dimethicone" which is the same ingredient in common makeup primers such as Smashbox Photo Finishing Primer.

Q: I don't think i've seen you post about any urban decay products... have you tried many things from this line? it's one of my faves!

A: Pretty much the only thing I have mentioned about Urban Decay of course is their Primer Potion (primer for the lids to enhance vibrancy and wear of eyeshadows), and their AWESOME UD Palette!. I love Urban Decay, but since I have a discount for MAC, I usually end up buying more MAC items!

Q: Why did you stop modeling?

A: It just wasn't my thing, as much as I appreciate all sorts of art and expression whether it be modeling or photography, I found a lot more joy into being behind the camera rather than in front. I LOVE photography and I love capturing things rather than me being the subject. There's also a lot of cons (strictly in my opinion) that go along with the territory as well, especially when you are under contract or signed with an agency, there are certain things you can and can't do and you have to be willing to work with other people's schedules and of course, harsh criticism, both from in and out of the industry. I still occasionally help out some of my friends who are photographers and help them build their portfolios.

Q: How big will your bunny get?

A: I researched it online as well as talked to a few bunny moms and I believe my baby bunny is a dwarf bunny just because I saw pictures of other dwarf bunnies and their ears and everything look so similar! This means that she won't really get any bigger than she already is which is a good thing! But she is learning so much everyday in terms of learning how to "fend" for herself and eat and drink on her own, as oppose to the BF or I having to feed her and make her go to the bathroom. Now she is doing it on her own without our help!

Q: When will you be selling pigment samples again?

I will be selling them very soon, right now Erica and I are currently packing everything and preparing our stock. I will be having an online store where I will occasionally be selling certain items, so you can definitely purchase samples through there.

Q: Where did you get your label maker and how much was it?

The label maker I used to label my MAC palettes I bought from Target. I believe it was about $12-19.

Q: I want to try mineral makeup but I don't know which ones are good to try, I don't want to break out, which ones do you suggest?

If you are an avid reader of my blog, you all know I love Silk Naturals mineral foundation! I get "buttery gold" and it allows you to customize your own shade by mixing the white powder with the dark powder. Visit their site for more information.

A lot of people also like Everyday Minerals but I personally didn't like their foundation on me merely because there was no shade match for me AND I found it to be sorta oily and blotchy on my skin at the end of the day. Buff'd Cosmetics also has awesome mineral products as well, and I love, I have tried their foundation and I love it as well if you don't like mixing your foundation. Lisa is great and she will take good care of you!

you know what's funny? my first bunny penelope was supposed to be a dwarf bunny...or at least that's what the ppl told us...and she ended up being as big as a cat! i called her a cat-rabbit...i guess that's what you get for buying a bunny at the flea market!

Ethereal Prey said...

*claps* well said! You are filled with so much knowledge. I've been thinking of changing up my mineral foundation, not sure where to get yet...

Bunny power! I'm sure your bunny probably wonders what you guys are up to while she's jumping around...

Glad you rocked your rainbow look!

Too bad EM didn't work out for you, I like their stuff. I might have to try Silk Naturals now though.

Currently I'm addicted to The Body Shop's All In One Face Base because 03 is perfect for me...

I might just have to try Monistat as a primer... I used to use silicone based lubricant as a frizz control on my crazy dyed and fried hair.

FYI for those that don't know Dimethicone is Silicone based and sometimes labeled as "Polydimethylsiloxane"...

I love your site!
I was wondering if you could help me answer a question regarding face masks. I have a lot of masks, such as peel off ones to remove dirt and clean my pores, whitening masks, clay masks to detox my face, aloe mask to protect it from the heat ...I live in Thailand and it's extremely hot. as well as vitamin E moisture mask to take care of my skin and keep it hydrated. I know that it would be to much to use all of it everyday but would it be ok if I use, lets say peel of on monday, whitening on wednesday, clay of fri and the rest of the days moisture masks? Would that be too much? If so, how would you recommend? Looking forward to reading your reply.

P.s. I did not post up my email address due to privacy concerns but would love to read your reply on the website when you answer reader questions. Hope you understand and answer it. Thank you very much.
